    he will be in the lineup on opening night. i have no doubt about that. he will have to completely suck in the first 9 games for them to send him back to everett.

    I hope for the Coyotes sake that they send him back to Everett. Otherwise he'll be a free agent at 26, just as he's hitting his prime. I think they'd be better off keeping him out of the league until he's at least 21. That's how I feel about all prospects not named Crosby or Ovechkin (or Tavares).

    However, I agree with you that he'll probably make the team and stick with them through another year of missing the playoffs.

    I'm a big fan of Mueller. He'll stick with Pheonix I'm sure.

    He'll probably be a lot cheaper to re-sign prior to UFA at 26 than he would be if he was going to reach UFA status at 27/28?

    His speed and frame should give him an edge to push for calder contention

    No point, he's dominated the WHL, there's nothing new for him there or reason to return. Plus, he's too young for the AHL so off to the NHL he'll go. He was a REALLY late cut last year and by all accounts has improved tremendously so yes, he should stick with the roster all year. As for when he hits free agent, who knows what will happen in 7 years? He may not even be a Coyote by the time he's 23, I just think your looking a wee bit too far ahead.

    Beware... this is the Brule killer situation, dominated juniors too young for the A, stay away injury bug

    I'm not a superstitious man but if I ever meet in public, remind me to slug you. :sarcasm:

    Also, Brule was rushed. Mueller wasn't, plus Mueller has the size.I'm not arguing which will be the better player, it just seems to me that Mueller is more prepared and ready to enter the league then Brule was.

    Not Good News in Minnesota

    I don't think Don Lucia of the Minnesota Gophers thinks this is such good news. Mueller was supposed to come to the Gophers this year. Typical of Mueller, not at all consistent with sticking to his commitments -- especially to schools.

    First of all, how is this "typical?" When else has he broken off any commitment?

    And further, how is it any different from a player having his rights drafted in the CHL but opting to play college hockey instead? I doubt Mueller ever gave Lucia a definitive commitment but instead merely chose Minnesota to keep his options over should he decide against the WHL (not to mention the fact that, after his first minute in the Dub, Mueller became ineligible to play in the NCAA).
